“Yes, we are,” answered former Obama administration staffer Michael Simon, citing the Trump Accountability Project. “Every Administration staffer, campaign staffer, bundler, lawyer who represented them — everyone.”

This is totalitarian, straight up. It’s a freaking blacklist! I don’t know yet who specifically is behind this.  A former Buttigieg staffer is claiming to be part of it:

We’re launching the Trump Accountability Project to make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did.

Join us and help spread the word.

GLAAD, the well-funded gay activist group, has a something called the Trump Accountability Project. I’m not sure it’s the same exact entity, but they are doing the same thing: compiling a blacklist.

As Jim Treacher warned last year: Pete Buttigieg Wants to Free You from Freedom.

Orwell wept.

I don’t know where Pete gave this speech, but he might be breaking the law because Indiana still hasn’t legalized marijuana. For a guy who speaks so many languages, he needs to brush up on his English.

So freedom means getting things from the government? Freedom means everybody has to approve of, if not actively participate in, your personal choices? Freedom means you put responsibility for your own feelings in the hands of law-enforcement officers? Freedom means you should be able to kill as many babies as you want, for any reason or no reason at all?

“Your neighbor can make you unfree.” Sure, if he locks me up in his basement. Short of that, what in the world does this mean, Pete?

And hold on a second… your cable company can make you unfree? Since when? I know Pete was only born in 1982, but if he’s as well-read as his supporters claim he is, he must know that Americans managed to survive for hundreds of years with no cable companies at all.

Freedom doesn’t mean being free from anything bad ever happening to you. It doesn’t mean being free from fear, or need, or want. Most of the things Pete lists aren’t a loss of freedom. They’re the price of freedom.

As some old dead white guy once said: “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take away everything you have.”

Not surprisingly, AOC is onboard as well: ‘Scratch a socialist, find a fascist’: AOC threatening to archive the tweets, writings, pics of ‘Trump sycophants’ does not go well for her, like at all.

AOC had an even zanier than usual day yesterday: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants The Lincoln Project to fund Black organizers ‘who are probably short on rent this month.’

I hope the Lincoln Project enjoys discovering what their newfound “friends” on the left thinks about them, now that the election is (or soon could be) over.
